Presented by James Hollis, Ph.D.
Tiny, dependent, and at the mercy of the world around us, we all have to adapt, adjust, bury, deny, split-off and repress, and thereby lose contact with our own sovereignty and natural source of guidance. The core focus of the second half of life, is the recovery of that source. In this workshop we will focus on the steps that can help us to identify the affects,, attitudes, and belief systems that can interfere both in our relationships with others, as well as towards ourselves, thus leading to a greater sense of integration of the parts of the personality we have sought to mute.
- Describe how the defenses of denial, splitting, and repression contribute to a weakened ego and sense of self
- Give an example of how the dismantling of a defensive structure can contribute towards a sense of integration
- Give an example of a maladaptive defensive structure
- Describe what is meant by an overly adaptive personality structure and why this defense often stops functioning in mid-life
